Michael over at Dadicus Grinch shared this daily “To Do” list that his 7-year-old son Hayden brought home from school one day.
Michael asked if the teacher had assigned Hayden and his classmates the job of making a list: “No, a few of us just wanted to make them.”
You’ll find that Hayden’s list is incredibly thorough (and hilarious).
A couple of annotations, courtesy of Michael:
4. “Special” is the term for a rotating class: Art, Gym, Music…
14. “Pink” is what we call their fluoride rinse. So glad that I put the fear of the dentist in them — can you tell?
17. “Jump and do armpit farts” The boy is lucky he hasn’t cracked any ribs he’s been doing so many damn armpit farts.
In honor of 7-year-olds everywhere, we at Stuff Kids Write invite to join us in completing Hayden’s list today.
Just don’t crack any ribs.
When Tara’s stepdaughter was seven, she wrote about how the world needed to change.
Translation: “I would really like to change the world. I think we should put more trees and more water, and there is too much dirt, too. Stop writing ‘fuck’ in toilets. Thank you.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Thanks to Tara of Love from Tara for the awesome submission. If you have something funny that your child or someone else’s kid wrote, please send a picture of it to mcfadden(dot)chase(at)gmail(dot)com or leanneshirtliffe(at)gmail(dot)com.
